I went back through some of the posts here a while back bored out of my mind on a work call. Two things were clear to me:

A) This was a really great board in its heyday

B) wow - some of my play in the early days was cringe worthy (even more so than now if you can believe that)

All 9 of the other guys in the home game I host are fully vaccinated so we played last Friday. In addition to providing dinner, snacks, and free drinks, I managed to lose $415 on the night after a pretty good early run ended abruptly on 2 hands in the same orbit. I'd like to say I got sucked out on, but I didn't. I just charged willingly into a buzz saw - twice.

Still - it was a lot of fun, even if I was so excited to be playing that I did it with all the discipline of a hyperactive 5 year old hopped up on Lucky Charms.

The CT casinos have re-opened their rooms for live play but the restrictions make it unappealing and it's probably still a cesspool, so it isn't worth the drive. The state is getting ready to legalize online poker and also online sports betting - so that'll be a good option I hope soon enough.
